News spread about fresh graduates who are finding it hard to be employed for a job because some of the employers were looking for bachelor’s degree graduates to be qualified for the job positions.
However, there were also companies who accepted fresh graduates but offers a lower minimum wage.
A netizen was disappointed after reading a post of a fresh graduate who called out to an employer to stop looking for bachelor’s degree applicants if they only offer 450 pesos per day as wages.
A Facebook user named Cassie Japos, who wrote a letter on her Facebook post, addressed fresh graduates to made them realize that employers are not only offering money but also training for them to be a better employees, as they gain experience and new skills by doing the job.
“Dear fresh graduate/millennial,
Newsflash, EMPLOYERS ACTUALLY CAN. What they are offering is not only 450/day but experience, training, and new skills.”
Japos also shared her experience when she started earning 7 thousand per month with some deductions but because of her experiences, it helped her earn a higher salary. For her, simply having experience was a stepping stone to be successful in a career.
“My first corporate job salary was only 7k/month minus SSS, PhilHealth, tax. But the skills that the company taught me earned my way to a higher salary and were a stepping stone to be a rockstar VA.”
After seeing a fresh graduate post on social media, Japos felt disappointed for fresh graduates/millennials who carelessly post such opinions online and having no thought that they can easily land a job without having referrals. She believes that having a degree is important but it is more important to have good work attitudes.
“I am appalled to see a fresh graduate post this. I know a degree is important but attitude is also imperative you self-entitled brat. I still can’t believe the number of idiot millennials who think they can land a job (without their rich parents’ referrals) after posting their stupid opinions online.🙄”
At the end of her post, she warned applicants that employers look into applicants’ social media accounts.
“FYI: Employers stalk an applicant’s social media accounts.♥️”
